Your sponsors can choose whether they receive email updates about your work. For more information, see "Managing your sponsorship."

The update will come from your user account's primary email address or organization account's noreply@github.com email address. If you've enabled email address privacy on your user account, the update will come from noreply@github.com instead. For more information, see "Setting your commit email address."
